TAMBORINE AVIARIES IS A CLOSED AVIARY meaning we do not allow visitors into our aviaries. This is for security against theft and isolation of our flock to control disease and infection from other bird and animal keepers. We sometimes sell young birds if a species breeds in order to provide breeding birds to other breeders, or pet birds to the public where individuals appreciate the value of having a live bird as a companion pet.
HABITAT DESTRUCTION There are no bird species in Australia that are endangered or threatened in the wild as a result of any trapping undertaken by individuals in the past. All threatened and endangered birds in Australia are in that situation as a result of government-sanctioned habitat destruction for agriculture, human infrastructure developement and various commercial enterprises which continue to this day. We are not opposed to those activities but we must recognise that this is a fact.
